Re: [ARSCLIST] Outboard ADC recommendations

O.K. Steven,

I did some research on the link below and came up with this info:

Unlike most conventional spyware, imrworldwide.com's Red Sheriff is loaded as a Java applet embedded in a Web page you visit. Once loaded, it sends information about your Internet usage (how long the page took to load, how long you stayed, etc.) to the parent company, supposedly bypassing firewalls, cookie blockers and the like. A number of Internet Service Providers have begun including Red Sheriff on their start pages, which are programmed to load every time the user logs on to the Internet.

If you or someone you know is aware (thanks, Steven) that it is on your system this is a link on how to stop it:

Even BBC.com uses it.

run one or more _javascript_s, including at least one sourced from http://imrworldwide.com/ (or so it appears).
Were the contents copied digitally from a web site?
